Despite body style or bespoke trim, the Continental GT looks like an exemplary great visiting auto, with cautious, continuous changes throughout the years to its aluminum body boards yielding a crisper look since 2012.

The bulky position of the GT outwardly moves its weight far from quad-oval headlamps back to its sharp, expansive shoulders. Cars look more tense and curled, while the convertibles have a more casual, customary look.
